    There were seventeen volumes in this series (running from 1966 to 1984) - with the first four being edited by Christine Bernard; but when Mary Danby took over the editing with this fifth volume and for all remaining volumes, there was a sharp rise in quality and consistency. Of the fifteen stories here, I'd say there are three duds (The Man Upstairs, The Sea Raiders and Quid Pro Quo), four ok stories, and a wopping eight very good ones. For me, EF Benson's Mrs Amworth is the classic here, closel There were seventeen volumes in this series (running from 1966 to 1984) - with the first four being edited by Christine Bernard; but when Mary Danby took over the editing with this fifth volume and for all remaining volumes, there was a sharp rise in quality and consistency.

For me, EF Benson's Mrs Amworth is the classic here, closely followed by Henry Kuttner's atmospheric giant rats story The Graveyard Rats and AM Burrage's The Waxwork. Other fine stories are The Blue Lenses, A Woman Seldom Found, The Lottery, His Brother's Keeper and The Hand. It's a generally fine series of books with many atmospheric stories, and whatever edition you get (they were reprinted many times) you'll probably be getting a stylishly grisly cover into the bargain!
